CLEAR helps create safer, easier experiences everywhere you go. We believe you are you and by using your biometrics – your eyes, face, and fingerprints – we keep you moving. Imagine a world where you can do virtually everything you need to – breeze through the airport, buy a beer at the game, check-in at the doctor’s office, access your office building, and more – without ever pulling out your wallet. CLEAR is currently available in 50+ airports, venues and more. Now with Health Pass, CLEAR securely connects a person’s digital identity to multiple layers of COVID-related insights to help reduce public health risk and restore peace of mind.

CLEAR is looking to expand our in house legal team! The ideal candidate is a business-minded and self-motivated attorney with at least 4 years of experience.

  • Coordinate with other internal functions to ensure internal business alignment and compliance with laws, rules, and regulations.
  • Understand, manage, and advise key stakeholders of legal and business risks.

Who You Are:

  • 4+ years of experience at a law firm or in-house as a transactional attorney
  • A law degree from an accredited law school and admission to practice law in New York
  • You enjoy working directly with non-lawyers to minimize and resolve issues quickly and effectively.

An Insider's view of CLEAR

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of my favorite things about CLEAR is how passionate and excited everyone here is about what we are building. You can really feel that in the office - you are empowered to put your ideas on the table and take ownership of the work you are doing. We also have a chef that makes breakfast 3x/week which is not a bad way to kick off the day!

Emily

Senior Technical Recruiter

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We constantly fight tech debt and have the buy-in from management and business to spend 25% of effort each sprint addressing tech debt. We call it the sustainability budget. This ensures the code is well designed, maintained and fun to work with. You'll do the best work of your career.

Dee

Senior Director, Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

In previous roles, I hadn’t had quite as much autonomy as I do at CLEAR. When starting here I didn’t realize I was empowered to make high-level suggestions, do proof of concepts, and present possible technology changes to the organization. It was great to get a nudge from my team and manager to be more open about my ideas to them and other teams.
